During my surprise visit with the running camera, asking if he would be willing to do his part, he attacked me: "Is not that enough what they're doing at this moment?" (LUTZ MOMMARTZ)

A short music video with the music of the band MamaWoju. The idea of the song and the video is a take off on the situation of a hitchhiker. In this song, the hitchhiker give a businessman a ride to Berlin. The special situation is that at this time you had to cross the DDR to go to Berlin so it was a very dangerous thing to take a hitchhiker on this road. Markus Flaschenträger mit Mama Woju beim Rollentausch mit seinem Vater zu seinem gleichnamigen Tramper-Song. (LM)

I've seen "The Stairs", which was not shown in Knokke at the Cream Cheese, a Beat-Restaurant in the historic center of Düsseldorf, where films from Lutz Mommartz were projected on the wall. The film shows a man at home with the camera: A man who keeps a running camera in his hand, observing him making his household tasks.
